The Best lawyer I've ever hired
I have been using Kristin for several months now and she has been BEYOND AMAZING. I had a consultation with her about 6 months before I hired her and she was so informative and helped me pull together a plan on what I needed to do and when I could take my custody case back to court. Yall she told me what I needed to be doing to help myself BEFORE I even hired her. Then when I did hire her it wasn't long before she got things moving. Kristin and her team explain everything to me before they do anything. I am ALWAYS in the loop about what's happening in my case and she listens to all of my concerns and always informs me of what my options are. I have had to bring my kids with me to an appointment and she was so sweet to them and made me feel so at ease about me having to bring them that day. I truly can not recommend her enough. If you want a lawyer that truly cares about you and your case and will fight for you Kristin Riggan is your girl! 20/10 would recommend.

Calm in the middle of the storm…
When I was looking for a lawyer to help me with my divorce, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know exactly what I needed and I wasn’t sure how the process was supposed to go. Kristin made sure I felt comfortable from the beginning, while making sure I understood what would possibly be next if I proceeded. She didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear in that moment, she told me what I needed to hear. Throughout the whole process, no matter what popped up, I didn’t worry. Kristin and her team made sure to answer any questions I had and took care of everything. They made sure I was well informed and continuously in the loop. She always seemed to figure things out as she remained calm and guided me through my storm. Thank you Kristin and team for your hard work. You made something that was so difficult for me go as smoothly as possible.

Best Attorney, hands down!
Kristin has represented me on numerous occasions. Personal, business, you name it. We met about 10 years ago when I was going through my divorce. She was thorough and didn’t leave a rock unturned. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family, as she is a wealth of knowledge in many arenas. You won’t find another like her!

Single-parent Adoption: Success
When I hired Kristin we both knew this would be a tough case, as I lived 2 hours from her office, and of course the reasoning, she took it on without any hesitation, and within a few months the case was over and it was successful. She made sure I was aware of any and everything that was going on and explained everything to where I would understand it. If it wasn't for her expertise and strive and dedication I would have been completely lost. She was phenomenal. Thank you again Kristin for all that you have done for my little family!

She is a blessing
She helped me out when I needed it most. above and beyond what I ever expected. She knows her stuff, she is well respected, trustworthy, honest, and has a good heart. Her rates are a steal for the service she provides. She is prompt , and very reliable. I dont know what I would have done without her , she guided me through my darkest times , and I was a handful at best. She even stored my most valuable items for me for years safely and returned them when I was in a more stable environment. Thanks Kristen you have been a great friend and legal advisor.

The best in Arkansas!
I not only recommend Kristin Riggan, but I guarantee once you have used her services you too will look no further. She responds in a timely manner, she is a very knowledgeable, trustworthy person. I used her for custody, she is a wonderful attorney. I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else!

Amazing attorney! Just hire her now!
Kristin helped me in the worst moments of my life. She helped both legally and emotionally throughout my divorce/custody battle. She knows when to hold her ace and when to play her hand in the game. She shows non-judgemental compassion throughout the whole process as well. I truly feel that her passion for helping people in difficult times is what drives her to be an amazing attorney. She gives you good advice, even when it’s not the advice you want to hear. She guides you compassionately through the whole legal process. You can trust her with your case 100%!

General practice Attorney | Jun 29

"Kristin is charming and witty - but this lawyer is as tough as nails! I have seen her stand up to tremendous pressure and refuse to back down. Even a lawyer with 10 years more experience is no match for Kristin's ethical determination."
General practice Attorney | Apr 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I had the pleasure of attending law school with Kristin. During that time, we had several classes together, and I saw, first hand, that she had the knack of thinking like an attorney well before she earned her law degree. Since graduating, I've seen Kristin grow as an attorney. In the little time she's been licensed, she has built up enough clientele, through her time as an associate at another law firm, to branch out, hang up her own shingle, and practice solo. If you're in need of an attorney, Kristin is an attorney to consider. Smart, reasonable, and down to earth, she'd make a great advocate."
